nothing like a rainy day to bring you down, but that doesn’t mean porting around your umbrella needs to be a burden. h-concept has designed the ‘unbrella’ which works in reverse, so that when it is closed it drains the water downwards so that you’re less likely to get yourself even wetter. in addition, this upside down configuration allows you to place your ‘unbrella’ anywhere without the need of a stand.
